BAKU, May 15-- The Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) project was 95.1 per cent completed, Azerbaijan State News Agency (AZERTAC) reported, citing the TAP AG consortium reports.
“TAP is currently moving further into the project construction phase. Every day hundreds metres of TAP’s Right of Way (ROW) are cleared, strung, welded, lowered into the trenches and backfilled, in line with the project construction steps and schedule.
“At the end of April 2020, the TAP project was 95.1 percent completed,” said the consortium.

Connecting with the Trans Anatolian Pipeline (TANAP) at the Greek-Turkish border, TAP will cross Northern Greece, Albania and the Adriatic Sea before coming ashore in Southern Italy to connect to the Italian natural gas network.
The project is currently in its construction phase, which started in 2016.
